We had two doves last year that stayed close to the back yard. This year they began drinking out of the pond. They will stand at the top of the waterfall and drink from the rocks. If the waterfall isn’t running, and we come out on the patio, they will stand there and look at us like “Why isn’t the water on?” Early in the summer two younger doves showed up and started drinking from the waterfall too. I assume it’s the offsprings of the the older two.
They are such beautiful and peaceful animals.
